PROJECT: Wickham Transport Interchange


PRODUCT: Securemax® and RazarTape®

PROJECT PARTNER: Fencing Australia for Novo Rail

In a bid to revitalise Hunter Street, Newcastle and improve links between the City Centre and the Newcastle Waterfront, Newcastle Light Rail including a new interchange at Wickham was developed.
Realignment of the rail boundary was required, project wide, and as such new security fencing was to be installed.
Fencing Australia was awarded the security fencing works contract and installed 1690 metres of Securemax® 358 Welded Mesh high security fencing along with short barb concertina RazarTape®, pedestrian gates and an automated gate.

Securemax® was specified for this project due to its strength, appearance and anti-climb/anti attack profile.,
Being alongside a busy rail line it was a necessity that the fencing keep the general public safely away from fast moving trains and also stops vandalism.
The highly transparent fencing allows security camera’s clear surveillance and its high aesthetics fits in well with the new developments surrounding the area.
